Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts


so the word on the street is pink anti freeze but seen as there is either non in the system or very little i was going to drain it down and start again.

so my question is due to my car being a 1999 plate would i get away with blue anti freeze as it's going to take 6l or am i going to be robbed by the pink stuff? also is europarts red the same as the pink that i need as its gl12+?

1999 will still run OAT coolant as far as I know. If its pink stuff in there, stick with it - its OAT and cannot be mixed with other types.

You can buy premixed stuff or concentrate. last time I bought 6litres, 5 litre and 1 litre bottle it was around £10 from eurocarparts.

Euro car parts item numbers, 523770511 and 523770512 with discount code XMAS comes to £9.76. It says red on the description but its not its pinky colour.

It must be to Ford's specification for your car or you'll start having issues. Don't skimp as you'll cause more expensive problems in the long run.

how can i find the spec for my car? i dont have any manual will it be on the net?

Go to Ford's part department and see what they try to sell you for your reg. Believe it or not, their coolant & fluids aren't too dear. Or, I'll try find out what Microcat says you'll need but it won't be tomorrow
